My Inspiration! Proverbs 31 Woman

My Inspiration! Proverbs 31 Woman

A while back we discussed Michelle Obama, and why she inspires us, this stirred me to share the piece below I wrote years ago. This person motivates and helps me to focus.

Some may say it is fictional and impossible? But still I am reminded of the saying “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”?

This person is the Proverbs 31 woman.

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.

Verse 13: She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands. She is willing to work and make the best of each situation

Verse 16: She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. She is wse and discerning … She is not impulsive, she considers things. She does not just jump into anything and everything or a path determined by another. She Invests her time and money

Verse 18: She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night. She is discerning, she has confidence and acknowledges her worth

Verse 21: She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. She is not fearful, she takes risks … risks that are calculated, and she plans and prepares in advance

Verse 22: She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. She dresses for success

Verse 24: She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants. She makes use of her talents and skills, and profits from them.

Verse 26 – 27: She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. She keeps busy, she does not gossip, when she opens her mouth, it is with wisdom.

Who inspires you? Do you think to aspire to be a proverbs 31 women is unattainable?
